The Dallas and Fort Worth Department of Transportation has established a huge network of CCTV traffic webcams, covering a large number of the big intersections and heavily congested roads in the area.
These high end, networked security cameras are live and can be helpful during bad weather, morning/evening rush hour, or if you want to see if that wreck on the turnpike has been cleared out. They are free to view, and available anytime. Check them out at the links below.
Many of the cameras used in situations like this are high end PTZ Cameras or Box Cameras, often utilizing outdoor housings and enclosures that keep them safe from the elements. The city also uses solar energy to power some of these installations, helping the environment while helping protect the city.
Pretty cool, if you ask me!
